Symposium EP06—Coherent Electronic Spin Dynamics in Materials and Devices
Recent advances in measurements of coherent electronic spin dynamics, especially near room temperature, underlies fundamental advances in sensing, quantum information processing, and low-power (non-quantum) devices such as magnetic memory and spin logic. A wide variety of materials exhibit coherent electronic spin dynamics, and thus studies of these effects have cross-platform implications. For example, similar dynamics can occur in diamond color centers, chromophores, organic light emitting diodes, silicon quantum dots, and complex oxide heterostructures. Fundamental theories of spin transfer, spin pumping, photonic coupling, and intersystem crossings are now being applied across these materials and disciplinary boundaries of spin physics, spin chemistry, and quantum information.
In order to focus on the directions of most immediate interest the emphasis of the symposium will be on materials and devices in which these effects occur at room temperature, or where a pathway towards room temperature is feasible.
